Birthday / Wedding clash dilemma

It's your girlfriend's birthday. Not a special one, just a run of the mill birthday. You've planned a surprise; again, just something humble.

Then your first cousin, to whom you are close, arranges their Wedding on the same day.

Is it unreasonable to suggest going to the Wedding and re-arranging the surprise for another, close by date?

    Does the girlfriend know about the surprise thing? If not, maybe rearrange it and then spring it on her at the wedding?

    Not unreasonable at all. But Miss6899 is one of the rare rational people who won't crack the sh1ts for something as minor as a birthday.

    If the surprise is on her birthday, you can hardly re-arrange.
    Speak to your cousin, if you r really close, he ll understand, chances are they ll be 100s at the wedding do and you ll not be missed.

    i think springing a surprise at wedding might fall flat unless you plan on proposing?

    At which event are you most likely to get naughties?

    Then make that one the priority.

    I'd love to go to a Wedding on my birthday and get totally sh!t faced. A nice day out at a happy wedding and a surprise, I'm sure she's be happy with that. If not I'll be your plus one. I'll make myself look pretty for you :D

    Which birthday though? Because getting sh1tfaced and playing Twister is a bit different to sh1tting yourself and playing bridge.

    If I were in Cambodia. I think I would stick to bridge.
    Those recently arrested there for playing twister are perhaps now sh1tting themselves.

    What If it's a shittt wedding, someone collapses, there's a fight and it rains?

    And to compound all that you've messed up her birthday?

    We've all been to dull weddings surrounds by dullards. This could be one of those.

    To tell the truth, I've always found weddings to be a bit dull. An event for certain kinds of ladies.
